I’ve never cared for Robin, nope.. ( I am not the only one, so it’s good)
She seems to be a better at directing than acting.
But– This story couldn’t advance without her being brought back, sigh ..

At this point in time I’m more interested and excited over Valentin’s story.
Franco and Valentin stuff is what gets me pulled in.

The 2 Jason’s has worn me out and has become ehhh..
It’s has a looooooong run so I’m letting it roll for now.

Patrick
Patrick

you are not the only one – with an if and or but

I will always LOVE her character of ” ole ”

when she was dating… Patrick … during their romance and courtship. AFIRE

Our Robin.. found LOVE… married and had that child.. DREAM

since that time.. and with Jason Thompson… GONE

she lost so much steam.

it always seems to me.. Kimberly McCullough… is no longer comfortable acting.

I know she LOVES her character and GH.. that’s a life blood that will always be

the only if and or but that is

is seeing Anna … always… when she is reunited with HER Robin and granddaughter Emma… NOW we get a grandson.

I like the mushy

Hey bro. I know you hate GH without Aron at the helm, but how could this story have worn you out already?? What has happened in two months would have taken a year under Carlivati! Jason would have been stuck in the clinic for months, he would have wandered around town having cliched missed meetings for another couple months, etc. At least this story makes sense within the show’s own reality. I point to Fluke, which dragged on about 6 months too long, and the show admitted to changing the story midway through because savvy viewers guessed very early on that Fluke was actually Bill Eckert. The writing is not manipulative or going against history just for shock value. It has roped in the majority of people in town in the classic soap ripple effect way. You are VERY much in the minority of disliking the pace of this story or the story itself! To each their own, I am not saying everyone can’t have their opinion, you’re a grown man. And it’s nice to see you being somewhat positive about the show, rather ban the two solid years you spent bashing and trashing! Sit back and enjoy!

I think it’s great when actors who have moved on to other things still want to make occasional appearances. It’s realistic to me. People move away but still come home to visit. Too many times, characters move away never to be heard from again. I understand the reality of that in soaps, but it’s great when these opportunities for Kim/Robin, Bradford/Spinelli, Ingo/Jax (no more…) present itself.

I agree, AJ! You’re spot on. As the World Turns was wonderful at bringing characters back for visits under Douglas Marland’s regime. It IS realistic. I think now a days it may be cost prohibited.

Are you kidding me? I look forward to her visits no matter what! Love Robin… wish she would return permanently !

Jovin

Even though she is rarely on screen, her visits are so special and so important. Essentially, she is the heart of GH. She is that anchor, that moral centre, that heroine that all soaps used to have, and need more than ever. As Robin brought Jason back to town, she is important to the story. The writers have really plotted all the beats of this story, and I am impressed at how they have picked up on story from years ago and weaving it all together so it makes sense! It has been a LONG time since gH has been must see tv for me, but it currently is! It makes me happy to say that!!

They should recast Patrick at least for one visit. with Robin…maybe its Robin who solves the two Jason mystery???

Satan

I don’t think a fake Patrick is needed for a short visit, but maybe that explains the Wes Ramsey thing?

Patrick is now Billy Abbott on Y&R and doing very well, I doubt if he would head back to GH.

i never mention he return…i said recast….

I’m sure that Robin is only sticking around for the Hellidays, but hopefully she will have some input into the Jason(s) story. She of course thought she was thawing out the real Jason at the time, but he couldn’t speak, so she never got to talk to him and realize whether he acted like the Jason she remembered (aside from a brief example of him using Jason’s “skill set” when they escaped the cryogenic meat locker/clinic in NYC.)

Emma & the new baby will be with her of course, and they will make some excuse why Patrick couldn’t make it.

Patrick

I HOPE @Satan : she is here for the holidays – Anna NEEDS her family…

if and or but – she does – NOT – need Finn

rebecca1
rebecca1

hahaha…yes she does (need Finn!) I haven’t seen that flirty look in Anna’s eyes for a long time…well, okay, she always seemed to flirt with Andre and they had that dance…but, since the writers dropped that (disco) ball I think she and Finn are great together! As you probably know…

we shall see….

“Hellidays?” Oh, Satan, you have outdone yourself with that one!

Normally I would be excited and return to watch a few eps with her in it. But with her servicing the Two Jasons, two Carlys and Sonny s/l and the moral center of the show still to the extreme, I can’t think of a reason to stream the show. If it were for a Scorpio/Lavery/Devane story or something important to the core of the show, I, of course, would return. As things stand, GH is nonexistent in my world but at least I still check the headlines for a sign of a pulse from the show.

Yay Robin!!!Love GH right now my only complaint get rid of Franco he is a coward and a creep!!!

Kevin O.
Kevin O.

I agree, but I like the actor. Kill Franco and bring him back as Todd. He can be a partner in schemes with Ava.

Jeffrie
Jeffrie

That would be so much better I love Todd!!!!!

A coward? He risked his life to save Carly (when they were engaged; took a bullet for her. Had himself committed to a psych ward and made himself to seem crazy…and, LOL, he WASN’T crazy…but acted so to keep Nina safe while she was institutionalized. Had himself injected with drugs just to help her. He also came back to Port Charles and admitted what he’d done…knowing he’d be a target. He’s taken responsibility for everything and when others have excused his behavior as having been caused by the brain tumor …Liz, Kiki, Dr. O, Carly …when she loved him…it was Franco that doubted himself.)

I dont see him as a coward. I see him as a man with a troubled past, more troubled than we even knew since he was obviously duped and lied to just like the two Jasons…and has become the punching bag for all of Port Charles (like AJ was).

I’m rooting for the guy even though I think he’ll probably lose Liz to one of the Jasons. Predictable. And I hope I’m wrong.

Jeffrie
Jeffrie

He is a coward because he knows who the real Jason is and is not saying anything it is typical Franco may do the right thing but always to late!Really just not a fan of the character sorry to say!

rebecca1
rebecca1

Hi Jeffrie…It’s okay to disagree…but, LOL, I do. Franco is no more a coward then Elizabeth was when she kept Jake in the dark about being Jason. She did the same thing…because she was afraid of losing him. (But of course that won’t matter and that’ll be the reason she winds up losing him.) Rick Lansing did something similar when he hired Hayden to be “Jake’s” wife…so as to get him away from Elizabeth. Nicolas kept the truth from Jake…when they thought he was Jason…so he wouldn’t lose control of ELQ.

I hate when any of the characters do this…it’s beyond frustrating. And in this case Franco is going to lose everything in his attempt to hold on to everything.

Sigh…I like him. And feel bad at how it’s probably going to unfold. He’s going to come out as the creep again…and Carly and Sonny, two of the biggest hypocrites in the show will have yet another thing to blame Franco for.

I loved how Scotty went to Franco and tried to get him to change his mind. Love Scott…

rebecca1
rebecca1

correction: But of course that won’t matter and that will be the reason she (Liz) winds up LEAVING, not losing, Franco.)

Please let the real Jason be Jason(Steve Burton) he’s been on the show for years and he made Jason morgan… no one play Jason like he does..i didn’t watch GH when GH replace him for Billy Miller because I feel like no one plays Jason like steve burton so now that steve burton is back on GH I been watching it and I love his role on the show especially with Sonny and Carly Please keep him as Jason Morgan if he’s not I wont be watching GH so please let him be cold stone

Great to see Robin hit the GH canvas again. We really need to get Patrick back and Robin on a recurring. Contract. GH is on fire right now and we need to keep the momentum. Robin is key to the Jason twin reveal. Like Carly, she knows the real Jason. Kudos to GH!!! It appears a lot of the happenings is tying many people to Port Charles. With the tie to Valentine, then Julian to him and Cassandra with Ana on her trail while in possession of the Jason clue(disco ball) is a masterpiece. Not to mention throwing little deceitful Nelle in the middle is awesome. I know a lot of people hate Nelle but the young lady is an extremely talented actress. There’s a lot GH and do with her, especially is Kim Nero is her biological mother. What will make more sense is that Oscar’s dad was Drews and not Jason. If Billy Miller is Drew, which he should be, there’s a lot to explorer here. A past GH could really create crazy drama with. BM needs something to sink his teeth in bc the Jason role is not his best. Although he’s been good in the role, I’m just saying what he’s doing now is not and will not be Emmy worthy. NowSam, awesome year for Kelly Monacowho deserves an Emmy acknowledgement.

Robin comes and goes from GH like the wind changes direction. I am getting tired of any storyline that she is in. Sorry!

Having grown up on the show, Kimberly has earned the right to appear a few times a year. It would be great if some other characters did the same.

It’s nice to have non-contract characters come back for a short, believable visit. Robin has moved her with her family (which happens in real life) and comes to visit…which means we get to see the character instead of her just non-existing like some other characters that never get a mention. It’s plausible she’d come back to visit Anna just to see her mom…or when Anna was sick, or now when she hears what’s going on with Jason. Very realistic. It’s not a tease…as if they’re implying she’s back for good. She returns sporadically, like Spinelli (who I’d like to see more of). Anway, I’m for it.

I always liked Robin, well almost except when she was so stupid about good Sonny. I Also think having characters return is great. Scorpio come home. Him I miss. I like Anna with Finn. I like both of them as I refuse to watch the mob ? I don’t watch much. As for who is Jason. I don’t care. I like the one who can walk and talk at the same time. As for who is real, I FF through the mob. So who cares. ?

Happy 57th Anniversary Today to General Hospital

ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital turns 57 today, and remains the current longest-running soap opera on the air.  GH debuted back on April 1, 1963.

The show was created by the husband-and-wife team of Frank and Doris Hursley.  Originally, the soap was not given a name of a particular town in which the drama of the hospital was set in.  However, that all changed in the 1970’s when GH was set in Port Charles.

GH expanded from a 30-minute show to a 45-minute show on July 26, 1976 and eventually went to a full-hour where it has remained back on January 16, 1978.

Throughout its decades on the air, GH was the impetus for two spin-offs; Port Charles, (which aired from 1997-2003) and primetime’s GH: Night Shift (2007-2008),

The show went through many ups and downs over its history, but things changed dramatically for the better, when by the end of the 1970’s and facing cancellation, ABC brought in executive producer, Gloria Monty to steer the ship.  Monty created supercouple Luke and Laura played by Tony Geary and Genie Francis, and opened the show up with exciting location shoots, and from then on GH has remained a firm mainstay in the daytime line-up.

Today, Frank Valentini is the series executive producer, and the soap is co-written by the head writing team of Dan O’Connor and Chris Van Etten.

The Triumphant Return of Kelly Thiebaud As GH’s Dr. Britt Westbourne

When a shocked Nurse Felix Dubois (Marc Anthony Samuel) exclaimed “Dear lord, the Britch is back,” after seeing none other than Dr. Britt Westbourne with her lab coat hovering around the nurses station at “General Hospital”, you knew things were about to go down on the ABC daytime drama series.

Over the past few weeks, Kelly Thiebaud has been in action on-screen on General Hospital as the the trouble-making, complicated, Britt.   Since returning to the canvas, viewers learned that: Britt has been paroled from her previous crimes, seems to say she believes and actually likes her half-brother, Peter August (Wes Ramsey), has confronted her mutter in jail (Liesl Obrecht played by Kathleen Gati), whom Peter framed, and showed up at Brad’s (Parry Shen) hearing to be there for her bestie, who has been in hot water for the baby switch of Wiley.

But, there have been a lot more intriguing things than even that! Britt is now hitting the sheets with none-other than Julian (William deVry), and also let him know in no uncertain terms she knows his part in the whole Brad cover-up.   But what is her true motive?  We also learned in a run-in at GH, that Neil (Joe Flanigan) and Britt know each other from somewhere.  He is trying to put his finger on just where, but does Britt know? Probably!

However, the best  and most entertaining moment on soaps last week was when Britt arrived in her lab coat to GH and revealed to both Felix and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) that she had worked hard enough to be able to get her medical license restored … and that Monica (Leslie Charleson) brought her on with a provisional acceptance as a temporary replacement for Dr. Kim Nero as an OBGYN for the hospital. Felix says give it two weeks and she will do something to mess things up.

Just then, in our favorite scene of the week, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West) happen by, and when Britt, who is Nik’s ex, sees him she saunters over to him and slaps him hard across the face and spits out, “That’s for Spencer.”  She goes on to berate him for how he hurt his son; by letting him believe that his father was dead for three years!  Britt tells Nikolas it would serve him right if Spencer knew spoke to him again.

Next, Elizabeth chimes in and tells Britt to stop acting all high and mighty.  Britt fires back that she is not surprised that Liz, another one of Nik’s ex’s, would defend him.  Britt says, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

So let us know, have you been enjoying the return of Kelly as Dr. Britt Westbourne, thus far? What do you think Britt is up to? Comment below.
